27 GARMENTS: A MOVIE ON FASHION
After the success of “The devil dresses in Prada” the movies turns again his eyes towards the fashion. On February 27 there will be released in Spain the movie “27 garments”. The script belongs to Aline Brosh, the same one that “The devil dresses in Prada”. The movie centers on the history of an idealistic and romantic woman and between all the garments that appear in action the stellar role corresponds to the wedding dress,
The protagonist of “27 garments” is the actress Katherine Heigh who has reached a big popularity for the series of TV “Anatomy of Flock” for which Emmy obtained the Award. It is a question of a medical drama full of fortunes that passes in the American hospital of Seattle. Katherine, of 29 years, has been recently a news for his wedding celebrated in Utah with the 27-year-old singer Josh Kelley who in February will throw a new disc.
In www.hbgmag.com we will publish a criticism of the movie “27 garments”. At the moment we can move forward to you that it has a very peculiar argument. The protagonist names every garment. The called one “what the wind took” puts in the first plane his protagonist Escarlata O'Hara by means of a suit in yellow silk with laces and a hat wide-brimmed straw hat with orange bond. “Bahama Mama” is a pink suit full of tulles in the low part of the skirt. The denim look interprets “denim wedding” with added of a white flower. “Submarine garment“ puts in the first plane adornments of fins and glasses of diving. And this way … up to 27. We do not know if the movie will answer the created expectations, but at first it seems very positive to us that the movies is fixed so assiduously in the Fashion.
